International law firm Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to have been ranked amongst the top ten law firms in 2016 with the greatest growth potential in Italy by Legalcommunity, Italy’s first social media platform dedicated to the legal market. This places WFW alongside leading firms such Freshfields and Dentons.
Legalcommunity awarded WFW this accolade in recognition both of the firm’s longstanding excellence in the energy, infrastructure and shipping sectors and in light of the highly successful new business strategy initiated last year by Italian managing partner Eugenio Tranchino. This success, they note, is clearly demonstrated by the arrival of a raft of highly respected lateral hires such as asset finance and project finance expert Pierpaolo Mastromarini in Rome and regulatory and infrastructure specialists Nunzio Bicchieri and Elena Macchi and tax expert Giuseppe Franch in Milan.
